First: Progress. Here is the baby sweater.
I kind of wish I had saved the garter stripe at the top (in the yoke) for under the arms/yoke. But it's still cute. I toyed around with some other ideas, and then a phrase of my husband's crossed my mine. "Keep It Simple, Stupid." Simple really is best. So a stockinette sweater it is. I am currently working on one of the sleeves.
It did end up a little wider/longer than a newborn. Mostly because I convinced myself that it would be better if it was "a little too big".
And now: A complaint.
Can I just sleep already? Wtf is wrong with me? I hate being pregnant. I just want to sleep. I only have to do this for nine more weeks and then I can sleep.
I know what you're thinking: "How are you going to sleep with a newborn? They don't really sleep for long periods of time."
I know. But at least with the newborn in my arms and not my belly I CAN GET COMFORTABLE AND FALL ASLEEP. Even if it's only for 45 minutes. At least I'll be knocked out and in a comfy position.
Ok, rant over. Sorry to dump. I am just soooooo sick of not getting any sleep. It sucks.
